Today is the anaversiary of the Battle for Iwo Jima and the flag raising on Mt. Suribachi. The 36 day fight for the volcanic rock called Iwo Jima was one of the bloodiest and costliest battles of all time. More Marines died per square yard than in any other battle. We owe these men a moment or two of silent refection for their sacrafice and bravery in the face of death. Be respectful and honor our vets!
